Dish (Nasdaq:DISH) is about to release earnings. Ponder this Bear Case Scenario:
Dish tends to push the legal and regulatory envelope. This means they often get into hot water and spend quite a bit on legal fees. This also means they will one day push something and find the Goddess of Good Fortuna is an ugly bitch.
Dish has been criticized for a poorly defined internet strategy.
Dish is not able to bundle TV, Internet and Phone services together much like traditional and well capitalized competitors can.
Dish should be stronger by know. They are not close to being dominant and do not seem to be able to pull ahead of the pack. Eventually you get eaten by something stronger faster and smarter.
